SCOPE's 2023 Participant Engagement Award



Participant Engagement Award


PEAは、2017年に初の賞を受賞した直後に残念ながら亡くなったJerry Matczak氏の価値観と個人の功績を体現しています。Jerry Matczak氏の理想と業績の追憶となることを願い、この賞を故人に捧げます。SCOPEの2023年参加者エンゲージメントアワードプログラムは、Cambridge Healthtech Institute(CHI)のSCOPEより贈られます。



We welcome submissions from all facets of the industry, including, but not limited to Sites, CRO's, e-Patient Advisors, Agencies, Start-Ups, and Sponsors  and invite you to submit your best work in the Patient Recruitment and Retention communications field.

All submissions will be reviewed by study participants, industry peers, and a panel of industry experts. Finalists will be selected to present their concepts in person at SCOPE taking place February February 6-9, 2023 in Orlando, Florida. This exciting competition will bring awareness to you and your company for excellent and engaging work.

Each finalist will be given 2 minutes to present their concepts, followed by a question and answer session conducted by the judges. Each submission will be reviewed and rated for ability to improve access, awareness, and participation in clinical trials, creativity, innovation, regulatory and legal compliance, and the ability to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion. Awards will be given for 1st through 3rd place with special recognition for all presenters.


Your submission must truly be designed to engage potential, current, or alumni study participants and/or their influencers and show marked improvements in the status quo.

  • We are not looking for: tip sheets, guidance documents, promotional "brochure-ware" or rewritten press releases
  • We are looking for: submissions based in education, recruitment, awareness and beyond. This can be anything from an interactive tool to a Superbowl Television commercial. The world is your pallet ... find your medium and your muse.

Helpful questions to address in your submission:

  • How did you engage clinical trial participants in a novel and innovative way?
  • How did this benefit the clinical trial ecosystem?
  • How did you measure the success of your efforts?
  • How did you improve diversity, equity and inclusion?
Judges are looking for innovation, creativity and messaging while meeting industry standards and compliance rules.
